Talkin' S--t About a Pretty Sunset

Album: This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About (1996)
  • This is a song about the mind of a suicidal person, or at least one who is dramatically depressed, and how he is always thinking about the negative sides of life - blaming everyone and everything except himself. The melody of the song is meant to symbolize the sun setting. >>

  • Brandee from Salem, NhSean... you're half right at least haha. It's about the mind of someone with bipolar (at least I think so). Who ever the person is representing is in a depression... he knows it will all change when he comes out of it or switches to manic. That's why he says, "Blanketing opinions that I'll probably regret soon. Change my mind so much I can't even trust it. My mind change me so much I can't even trust myself" I'm bipolar.... I promise it's true haha. When you're depressed you see things like he's explaining.. yet he knows he's really a "pretty sunset" and he's just going through his depressive side. Bipolar people go from feeling something strongly... then feeling the opposite just as strongly later. Oh yeah... it's fun haha.
  • Jess from Kannapolis, NcI swear I can see every one of their songs in myself. "I've changed my mind so much I cant even trust it. My mind changed me so much I cant even trust myself" - that is SO me.
